Yes, I did watch the Oscars, and now I’m wondering why. I have a hard time relating, in this regard — In sports you can take a loss, and learn from it. I’m going to work on my free-throws, I need to work on my serve, or I have to pin point my curve ball better. How does it work with the artists who’ve reached the pinnacle of their profession. Do they feel that if only they had put more emotion in a certain scene of the movie they would have won. Or do they measure their success in a different way than wins. For example does Meryl Streep feel like she’s still batting below .200 (3-17 oscar wins). I don’t think so.

Success is the expression of true individuality. No one can bestow it on another. None can prevent or hinder. It is won by each of us and through the winning we accomplish our development. Every step of progress furnishes fresh evidence of the truth.
